Good morning!

I'm still home today as we are having freezing rain and sleet and have been told to stay off the roads until 10AM. Office opens at 12....I get off at 2:30---tell me, do you believe the hassle to get in will be worth the two and a half hours I would be there to work?

Me neither!

Having a great trip so far. We like Saratoga Springs, didn't think I would. We requested congress park and got our request. Look out over Downtown Disney, a short walk over and the bus stop is out front.

Had been reading about complaints on buses, but we never waited more than 5 minutes for a bus, guess we were lucky with the timing. Did HS yesterday morning and MK last night. Going back to HS tonight for the American Idol finale show and fantasmic tonight.

We had another great pay it forward yesterday. We had done Toy Story mania in the morning and had a fast pass for 3:00. Decided to not go on again and gave them to 2 girls who looked stunned. Fast passes were sold out. At the MK last night a woman walked up to us and gave us 3 fast passes for BTMR. We used 2 and gave the 3rd to a single guy. I just love Disney.....there is still magic there.

I would just forget about it and stay home. Unless they would prefer that you come in but for 2.5 hours its just not worth it....really, how much work are you going to get done??

Awesome price! Is that from Dulles? I checked from Norfolk and it was $330. Last year we were able to use our Delta companion fare and it was around $500 for both of us. Hope that works again!

Definitely not! It's warmed up a little here in VA Beach but there's still quite a bit of snow on the ground. The lake behind the house has pretty much thawed now. Right now it's in the mid-30's and raining. We fly to St. Maarten on Friday--yippee!

Glad you like SSR! It's our home resort and we love it. We've never really had the problem others complain about with the buses. We've waited longer at other resorts, like VWL for example, or POFQ. I sometimes wonder if the complainers expect that as soon as they step out of their room the bus will arrive! We like Grandstand, it's pretty quiet but Congress Park for the view is a close second! Nice stroll over to DTD as well!

Glad to hear the magic is still there! We are officially 100 days out!!

Yikes! The price is still there for the $181!! We leave at 2:30 PM on Friday and we don't fly back until 4 on Saturday, but it's all good!

Maybe you should drive up here and fly out of Dulles! I just looked at the price, it's still that low.

It's cold and damp, though everything has melted. It is 42º right now.

Stopping by to say hello...

Hopefully in a few days things will calm down around here and I can pay more attention to the Dis... watching on FB is easier for me .

My DD turns 16 tomorrow and this month has been crazy planning her party which was this past Saturday. The girls got a limo and headed to Hollywood and then off to McDonalds for dinner. Nothing like arriing at McD's in a limo.

THey had a sleepover at the Grand Californian and then breakfast at Goofy's Kitchen.

All went well but it was tiring.

Hope I haven't missed anything important.
